Population and Reproductive Health
We believe communities should prioritize the health of girls and women through education and access to reproductive health services. We prioritize funding in this area for organizations that work to reduce teen pregnancy and ensure youth and adults are educated about, and have ample access to, multiple methods of family planning. Access to these programs and services has a lasting positive impact on families and communities.
We work to ensure teens receive comprehensive sexuality education and that both youth and adults are educated about, and have ample access to, reproductive health services. We want girls and young women to develop leadership skills and confidence so that they make good choices about their reproductive health and futures.
What We Fund
We fund organizations that offer secure access to comprehensive sex education, family planning and reproductive care, prenatal and postnatal care, contraception, and emergency obstetrical care. We provide support to organizations that work with teens to teach them about pregnancy prevention and intervention strategies, or to develop leadership skills and confidence in girls and young women.
The Foundation awards general support and project grants to organizations that work within our geographic scope and are a fit with our funding strategies. Learn more about our approach and initiatives.
